SILVA, ‘Janeiro’ – Exclusive Premiere + Vinyl Contest
Hailing from Brazil, over the past few years SILVA has been steadily gaining fans across the world. With his unique brand of electronic pop, SILVA's music is layered with personal significance; this is evident in his latest LP, 'Ocean View,' which hit the streets on Sept. 23 via Six Degrees Records. Today (Nov. 6), Diffuser is excited to debut the live music video for the third track on the album, 'Janeiro.' Check it out above.
In the song, SILVA's delicate, beautiful vocals are stacked on top of a powerful foundation of electronic arrangements, and even a brass section -- and now, it's all presented in a captivating black-and-white video.
"This video is very important for me to be my first official live video," SILVA explains to us. "I had the opportunity to record it in two amazing places in São Paulo. Part of it was recorded at SESC Belenzinho, which is one of the most famous venues in the city, and the other part was recorded at Ibirapuera Auditorium, perhaps the best auditorium for shows in the country -- which also features incredibly architecture from Oscar Niemeyer. It has a fantastic structure and stage that produce excellent acoustics."
SILVA humbly admits, "Both shows -- and now this video -- have been great experiences for me."
'Janeiro' is available now in the U.S. via iTunes -- and for vinyl fanatics, the record is available on wax exclusively in Brazil (titled 'Vista Pro Mar'). But don't worry, we've teamed up with Six Degrees Records to give one lucky fan a copy of 'Vista Pro Mar' on vinyl.
On Monday, Nov. 10, at 5PM ET, we'll draw a winner from the pool of entries. Read our official contest rules here -- and good luck!
